James McClean has signed a new and improved deal at West Brom Albion.

The Republic of Ireland international, who has had a successful time since joining the Hawthorns in 2015, has signed a new-and-improved contract which sees him now committed to the Premier League side until 2019, with the option of a further year.

The 27-year-old has also shone on the international stage in 2016, scoring three goals which has helped Martin O’Neill’s men sit proudly at the top of their 2018 World Cup qualifying group.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis said: “James thoroughly deserves this and has worked hard to achieve it.

“James’ attitude and commitment to the group is first class and I’m delighted to see that approach rewarded in this way.”
